We Make Your Work and Copyrights Our Number One Priority

You’ve labored hard to create your work. From books and dramatic material to musical and artistic endeavors such as poetry, novels, movie scripts, song writing, software, technology and architecture. What would it be like if someone else came along and claimed your work as theirs? Or worse, if you were limited in creating these ideas in the first place?
This is where Copyright Law comes in. We protect your life’s work, but moreover, we further promote and encourage scientific and artistic progress by granting creators the freedom to continue their pursuit and passions. Copyright ownership not only protects authors and creators in their efforts, it encourages them to create more by granting them a temporary monopoly, or ownership, of exclusive rights over a specified length of time.
